Loved One Arrested? What You Should Know About Posting Bail

One night I was sitting at home relaxing when my husband called me from jail. He told me he had been arrested and asked me to post bail. I had no idea how bail worked. I didn't know if I should do it, what it would cost or how to go about doing it. I created this website because I know that others may find themselves in the position that I once found myself in. I hope my information helps you make a decision on whether or not to post bail, and teaches you what to expect should you do so.

Going Through A Divorce: Always Work With An Attorney To Figure Out The Details

When you are going through a divorce, it can be easy to get overwhelmed over everything that has to be figured out. Even an amicable divorce can have complications once the reality of the situation becomes apparent. Your divorce attorney is there to act on your behalf and to look out for you as you go through the process. From child visitation schedules to asset and debt division, an attorney is going to know what you are entitled to and how to go about getting it. Even if you are trying to get through your divorce quickly. allow an attorney to look over anything before you sign it.

Establishing a Custody Arrangement

Your custody arrangement and visitation schedule is tough to change once you and your ex establish an agreement. Know what you want before you sign anything, and don't agree to a schedule that doesn't work for you. When you and your ex are both actively involved in the lives of your children, you can expect a near 50/50 split in both custody and visitation. Children deserve to have both parents in their lives, as long as both are a safe option.

 Dividing Up Your Property

Marital property includes both assets and debts. In general, anything the two of you purchased together is considered marital property. The debt you accumulated together is also marital property. If you have an inheritance that you never allowed your ex access to, that's separate property. Any jointly held bank accounts, credit cards or vehicles are considered marital property as well. Property division is done either through community property or equitable distribution, depending on your state. Community property states divide everything in half, while equitable distribution divides assets and debt into what is fair.

Always Have Contracts Looked Over

Any agreement or contract you want to sign should be read thoroughly by your attorney to make sure it is fair to you. Even when you trust your ex, an attorney will know whether you are signing something that is going to work out for you in the long run. Trying to get through your divorce fast is not going to help you in the future.

When you are going through a divorce, understand that the process takes time. While you might want to hurry, always allow an attorney to look through agreements you are ready to sign. It is almost impossible to change visitation agreements once your divorce is final, and an attorney will be able to provide you guidance.
